BEIJING - French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, a leading candidate to head the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said on Thursday that she was "very satisfied" with her meetings with top Chinese officials.

Lagarde, who is in Beijing as part of a whirlwind world tour to rally support for her IMF candidacy, is considered the favorite to replace former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn after he was arrested last month on rape charges. She met Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan and central bank chief Zhou Xiaochuan on Wednesday.
